Week 18 Bumpdate

How far along: 18 weeks!

Baby Size: The baby is a size of a sweet potato, my favorite veggie! (5.5 inches long, 6 oz)!

Weight gain: up another pound to 119

Maternity clothes: I stocked up on Black Friday at Gap and Destination Maternity!

Stretch marks: Not yet. Crossing my fingers and using my creams every night!

Sleep: Amazing!

Gender: A sweet baby GIRL! I still can’t believe it! It feels so good to know who our baby is – Caroline Grace Marcellino!


Movement: I have to really concentrate and be super still to feel a little flutter.

Best moment this week: I don’t know – our Gender Reveal Party, hosting our families for Thanksgiving, our doctors appointment and ultrasound! It has been such an amazing week full of celebrations! Our hearts are overflowing with happiness! 

Looking forward to: Buying lots of bows and monogrammed things!

Food cravings: Egg sandwiches, bagels, orange juice, queso…


Anything making you queasy or sick: Nothing really. I can tolerate chicken again.

Labor Signs: Will start answering this in about 26 weeks…


What I miss: Hmm, maybe a real glass of wine at Thanksgiving.


Symptoms: Growing belly, dry skin and heartburn!

Nursery: We ordered our crib and rocker on Black Friday! We knew we wanted a classic and simple crib so we decided to go with the Kendall Petite Crib {on sale from Pottery Barn} since Caroline has such a short momma! And I am so in love with the Wingback Convertible Rocker {on sale from Pottery Barn} we picked out. It is absolutely gorgeous, comfortable and converts to a traditional armchair.

Belly Button in or out? In

Wedding rings on or off? On

Mood: I can’t stop smiling.

Workouts: Just one workout this week. I blame Thanksgiving. 

Prayer for Caroline: 


Dear Lord, I thank you for our sweet little Caroline Grace who you are making so wonderfully. As her uterus and fallopian tubes develop this week, I pray for her sexual purity. Help me to teach her to follow Your ways, and give me wisdom to answer tough questions. Make her strong against temptation and the pull of the world. Instill Scriptures in her heart so that she does not sin against You, as Proverbs 119:11 says. In Jesus’ name.


“Do you not know that your body is the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body.”

– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
